Research Fellow

Cardiff University - School of Healthcare Sciences

The School of Healthcare Sciences is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to conduct research within the field of glaucoma. The role holder will contribute to the overall research performance of the School and University by the production of measurable outputs including recruitment of patients and staff, collection and analysis of data, bidding for funding and publishing in national academic journals and conferences.

In this RfPPB funded study, we aim to develop and test the feasibility of a new approach to identifying non-responders to glaucoma eye drops; the Cardiff Model of Glaucoma Care (CMGC). The ultimate goal of CMGC is to reduce the time taken to identify whether patients respond to eye drops from a current uncertain, lengthy period of months to within four weeks, and thereby personalise eye medication to individuals with glaucoma more efficiently than is currently practiced in the NHS.
